The Cornhill Insurance Test Series
' England v Australia from Old Trafford Third day
PETER WEST introduces further coverage.
Rear Admiral Nick ' Goodhart is a former test pilot who invented the mirror deck landing-sight for aircraft carriers, held a world gliding record, and introduced the sea jet-foil to the Royal Navy. Six years ago he designed Britain's strangest aeroplane-pedalled by two men, and with a wing span equal to that of a jumbo jet. Mike Debens joined the family and friends who set out to build the prototype at a secret air-base. But not only did the pioneers have to rectify endless technical breakdowns, they found themselves on a collision course with NATO.

A series of eight programmes
Narrated by David Attenborough 6: Artists in Exile
In the south of France, on the banks of the picturesque river Lot, an old army camp has been transformed into a Vietnamese village. For 25 years it has provided a home for refugees, and it is unique in having preserved an extraordinary cult of spirit possession which can no longer be found even in Vietnam.
Among the old ladies of the cult are a select few who have been chosen as mediums, and in ceremonies which last many hours they rapidly enter a trance, dancing before the shrines in the robes of the spirits which possess them.

Robert Erskine presents three programmes in which everyday life in classical times is re-created from letters of the period. 2: A Roman Gentleman
' At the recent election some of the voting-papers turned out to have jokes and obscenities scribbled on them! '
A reflection on the changing times from the letters of Pliny the Younger, a lawyer and senator in Rome around 100 AD. He deliberately published his letters much as prominent people do today, and from them a picture emerges of every aspect of Roman upper-class life; his legal activities, literary tastes and his opinions of his servants, wife, houses, the Emperor and the Senate.
